I Am a Poetato

I Am a Poetato 
by John Hegley

by John Hegley (Frances Lincoln)

In recognition of his standing as a poet of, well, some standing, the publisher has given Hegley’s new collection a hard cover and a bigger format. It’s worth it. There are some fabulous ideas in here as Hegley takes his usual off-the-wall look at life with wit and wisdom. I give you (and surely someone will grab the last line as a catchphrase):

The Quibble

likes an argument

at any time of day,

morning or night,

You might hear the Quibble say,

‘That’s not quite right, is it?

Or, ‘Are you sure, Barbara?’
